Crossbar Length and Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Chevy Malibu  


for 2019 chevy malibu with four doors. I am looking for a nice looking and dependable roof rack. What are the appropriate length crossbars for this car?


Expert Reply:

The recommended length of crossbars for your 2019 Chevy Malibu are going to depend on the manufacturer of the roof rack you select. For example, the roof rack I highly recommend checking out for your four-door '19 Malibu is from Yakima and uses 60 inch JetStream bars. This is the best roof rack for your car because it is highly effective, quiet, and will give your vehicle a distinguished look as you can see in the accompanying photos of this rack on a Chevy Malibu

This roof rack is made up of:

- Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00426 (Black)
- BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y28TR
- Fit Kit for Baseline Towers # Y06123

This roof rack looks graceful atop your four-door '19 Malibu due to the aerodynamic shape of the JetStream crossbars. The aero shape of these bars, along with their built-in WindRidges, is also what ensures that this roof rack minimizes the wind noise that other types of crossbars can create.

The JetStream crossbars are extremely functional and durable due to their anodized aluminum construction, which not only provides them with optimal strength but also ensures they are resistant to corrosion. These crossbars have T-slots which allow you to use channel-mounted accessories; the T-slots have rubber "SmartFill" strips in them which means you are not going to have to cut them to mount accessories, you can simply push the strips in to use the T-slots.

I do recommend adding the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) locks # Y07204 to lock the rack and help protect your investment; I have added links to video reviews of the roof rack and locks for you to take a look at as well.
